Ordering of the test cases

Is there anyway where we can gurantee the ordering of the testCases to
be executed.
I mean to say that test1() executes before test2()?

Don't do that.
If you need some setup code to run before a series of tests, you can put it in the setUp() method of a TestSuite object.
But don't write order-dependent tests. It just makes the tests hard to interpret and hard to maintain.
